ND Soldiers Honored

Posted: Updated:

WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota National Guard soldiers who served a year in Afghanistan and lost two of their comrades there are being honored.
    
The members of the 818th Engineer Company returned home in late March. The Guard scheduled a "Freedom Salute" ceremony for the soldiers Sunday afternoon in Williston, where the unit is based.
    
The soldiers served as combat engineers in Afghanistan, clearing roadside bombs. Sgt. 1st Class Darren Linde, of Devils Lake, and Spc. Tyler Orgaard, of Bismarck, died in the line of duty last Dec. 3. A third soldier, Spc. Ian Placek, of Bismarck, was wounded.
